If it's November, then the NYC Marathon kicks off the month! This weekend will be my 15th consecutive NYC Marathon (and my ninth race for the 9+1 guaranteed entry for 2018). I've said it many times over the years, but this is my all time favorite running event :D
While it may tend to overshadow the rest of the month, there are plenty of other good races out there. In fact, I plan to revisit the Knickerbocker 60K (now called the NYC 60K) later this month. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, another blast from the past - the Beachfront Bushwack! This 5 Mile cross county race at Tods Point in Greenwich disappeared from the running scene a few year ago. Now it's back as a Thanksgiving Day race. Two days later, on Saturday, it's back to Greenwich for the annual Turkey Trot 5k (on behalf of the Alliance for Education).
I may try to squeeze in another race or two this month, but nothing definite yet.
Here's how it looks so far:
11/5 - NYC Marathon
11/18 - NYRR NYC 60K
11/23 - Beachfront Bushwack 5 Miler
11/25 - Greenwich Turkey Trot 5K
As always, if you're at any of these events - say hello!
